The provisional figures in Liverpool show that students in 16+ education have matched last year’s record success. The results show that Liverpool is now on track to achieve a pass rate of approximately 98%, with 70% of pupils gaining grades A*-C (5.5% of which are the top A* grade).
Even more schools across the City are now also getting 100% pass rates – 8 this year, compared to 5 in 2011. These schools are:
Archbishop Beck, Archbishop Blanch, Notre Dame, South Liverpool Enterprise Academy, North Liverpool Academy, St Edward’s College, Belvedere Academy and The Blue Coat School.
Five of the schools which gained the 100% pass rate are now academies. The Conservative led government is keen to show the benefits and positive results which have been demonstrated by schools becoming an academy or a free school. It is important that parents have a greater say, and teachers are back in charge of the classroom.
